TSHA's Assistive Technology Center

TSHA is pleased to partner with Oklahoma ABLE tech and with the Department of Rehabilitation Services' Equipment Distribution Program in order to serve deaf and hard of hearing individuals in northeastern Oklahoma.

The ABLE Tech loan program allows Oklahoma residents with hearing loss, their family members, and the professionals who support them to borrow and try assistive devices before purchasing.

The DRS Equipment Distribution Program provides specialized equipment in three categories especially tailored to meet the needs of consumers with deafness or hearing loss at no or reduced cost to qualified individuals.

TSHA's Assistive Technology Center (ATC) has a variety of equipment available for individuals to try in person or to borrow for a period of six-weeks. Some of the assistive devices we have ready to test include amplified phones, text phones, alert systems, personal amplification systems, clocks made especially for individuals with hearing loss and many more devices.
